Don’t know if I really post it in the right forum.
I have tried a couple of options to create an HTML landing page a couple of weeks ago…
I finally set up on using Bootstrap Studio.
The reasons I chose it over another tool like Pinegrow are:
- Felt the interface was more user-friendly (less stuff to learn);
- liked the bottom panel where we can drag stuff, reorder and all easily (yes, Pinegrow has that, but with so many panels, the interface can’t hold it all and you end up having to constantly switch between the layout panel and the style panel (among others);
- was easier to add extra elements like a slider and form.
But, while I was using it, I realised that each time I was adding some styles in Appearance, it was actually adding inline styles… I was expecting it to work more like Pinegrow: when we select something that it predefined, that it would apply the corresponding Bootstrap class (ex: change the color text).
Ex: in Pinegrow, you have the style panel that allows you to add any style you want. That will create inline style, that you can export in an external CSS file… BUT if you use the Properties panel, you have many CSS styles that can be applied from there (ex: text color, transform, size, margin, padding, display, borders, etc.) that will simply apply the appropriate Bootstrap class.
I feel in a certain way that the Options panel does that, but the options are really limited…
So, question/request would be: is it possible, whether in the Appearance or the Options panel to have a section, a little like Pinegrow, where it would use directly the Bootstrap classes to style the elements? (ex: adding the text-white class to a link when we click on white for a text, instead of adding style=“color: var(–white)”>)
